i am using the free version of DMS. so far i have managed to figure almost everything out. the one thing i have not been able to play with, no matter how hard i try, is the appearance of the navbar. i am using a navbar with the base color. i simply want to be able to modify the appearance of the text links, to make them bigger and bolder. any help with LESS/CSS for this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there, please see our overview on how to find the relevant classes to make the changes in the css using a web inspector like firebug or Chrome developer tools.

i have never used chrome developer tools before. i am trying to figure it out now but it is over my head. i have been doing basic HTML work for many years, but have always done thing by hand. i'm not familiar with some of the newer programs and developer tools.

 

even using the developer tools, i am not seeing the full CSS info / all the classes that would allow me to figure out what classes i need to use to add custom CSS into DMS..

Chrome's Dev tools in my opinion are far superior to FireBug. If you're struggling with Chromes dev tools, you should try doing the following interactive free course/tutorial, its awesome.

It will have you a Dev tools ninja in no time.
